Camping – ($20 per individual, pre registration only)
Be sure to register for camping if you plan to camp at Susquehannock Campground, the home base for Dirt Fest. This camping registration includes Friday and Saturday nights, Thursday if you’d like to come early. Susquehannock Campground will close on Sunday at 3pm.
Camping is primitive and sometimes crowded‚ others call it cozy. Register as either Camping at Dirt Fest with a group or Camping at Dirt Fest as an individual.
The larger your group, the more primo the space you are assigned. Register individually but please include your desired group name, shop name, or club name so we can place your group together. Spell it out though, no acronyms; “Chicago Area Mountain Bike Association” instead of “CAMBA.”
Please plan on arriving: Thursday, 2 p.m.-8 p.m.; Friday, 12 p.m.-8 p.m.
There are no: showers, electric hook-ups, RV’s, internet hot-spots, trailers of any sorts, bad attitudes, etc.
There are: trees with roots, hilly slopes, the occasional rock, great views, lots of friendly folks, vault toilets, and hand pump water.
Parking – ($30 per vehicle/ limited to 300)
For those camping at Susquehannock only!
In an effort to improve event safety and encourage carpooling (or riding) to the event, we’ll be limiting the number of vehicles that can park at Susquehannock campsites.
If you wish to park your vehicle at or near your campsite, you’ll need to purchase one $30 parking pass per vehicle.
However, purchasing a parking pass is not mandatory. If you do not wish to purchase a parking pass, you will be issued a temporary pass for the purpose of unloading camping gear. After unloading your gear, you will be required to move your car to a remote parking area.
If you are looking for a nearby, family-friendly camping option, consider Seven Points Campground Loop. Operated by the Army Corps of Engineers, it provides improved RV and tent camping with electricity and running water, including hot showers. This location is approximately three miles away from the expo area, but you can ride on trails the entire way to the campsite. That’s right, we added a trail. Ridge Camp and Meadow Camp are closest to the trails. If this sounds like what you are looking for you must purchase a day pass to Dirt Fest and reserve your campsite independently through the Army Corp of Engineers.
There are other area local campgrounds as well: Woodland Campground and Raystown Family Campground. Be sure to check the proximity of the campground relative to the event before booking!
If you are staying elsewhere or not spending the night and you want access to the vendors, expo, events and demos, purchase an Attending Only wristband that is good for all three days of Dirt Fest. It gets you demo bikes, live music, beer, nutrition clinics, skills clinics, and any other events you want to attend. Day-of registration is $5 extra.
